Idebenone, an alternative to coenzyme Q10 with antioxidant power
Idebenone is an analogue (variant) of one of the most important biochemical compounds: coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is essential for the production of energy by mitochondria; without it, life would quickly cease. Idebenone has all the qualities of CoQ10 and provides even more powerful and wide-ranging protection. In particular:
¬§ Idebenone does not self-oxidise like CoQ10 in situations of hypoxia (lack of oxygen) - it continues to prevent free radical damage and helps maintain normal production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP); Idebenone is a significantly more powerful antioxidant than CoQ10;
¬§ Idebenone improves cholinergenic activity, increases Nerve Growth Factor synthesis and stimulates cognitive ability;
¬§ Idebenone protects organs when ischemic problems occur (poor blood supply);
¬§ Idebenone protects brain cells from excitotoxicity caused by excessive glutamic or aspartic acid; Idebenone can therefore be recommended for: Healthy individuals who want to benefit from its psychostimulant and procognitive effects, or to improve their general energy and vitality; Alzheimer's, senile dementia or stroke patients Those undergoing serious surgery (idebenone is used to preserve organs intended for transplantation); Keen sportspeople or those who have above-average stamina requirements;
¬§ those who regularly consume a lot of aspartame or monosodium glutamate;
¬§ those who wish to maintain or boost their cardiovascular health and who want something over and above CoQ10;
¬§ Those who have a tendency to depression and who wish to slightly raise their levels of norepinephrine and serotonin;
¬§ Those who wish to include a multi-action active compound in their anti-ageing regime that will act synergistically with their other supplements.
¬§ Existing CoQ10-users should consider adding at least one idebenone capsule a day to their regime to benefit from the exceptional synergy that exists between these two variants that have different sites and mechanisms of action. For healthy individuals, 45 mg a day is adequate. 90 mg a day appears to be the optimal dose - at this level, improvements will be discernible after just one month and will continue to be felt during subsequent months.
Take one or two vegetarian capsules a day at mealtimes, as required, or as suggested by your therapist.
